Our favorite quick & easy dinner

Our favorite "go to" quick and easy dinner is definitely pita pizzas.  And not just any pita pizzas, but BBQ Chicken pita pizzas.  They are so delicious that we gobble them right up.  We ordered a takeout BBQ chicken pizza a few weeks ago and were highly disappointed that it wasn't anywhere near as good as what we make ourselves at home.

BBQ Chicken Pita Pizzas

Pita pizzas would really be great with any toppings of your choice, but we love these BBQ Chicken ones so much that we aren't willing to try something else that we may not like as much.  Some other great combinations would be a Mexican pizza with refried beans, meat, taco sauce or salsa, cheddar cheese, tomatoes, scallions, and jalapenos or olives.  A Greek pizza with pesto sauce, feta, spinach, olives, mushrooms, artichokes, and red onions would be delicious as well.  Or you could go the old fashioned route with marinara, mozzarella, and pepperoni.  We make a total of 4 pita pizzas for the two of us, but it tends to be more than two of us can eat, but the leftovers are still delicious.

-4 pieces whole wheat pita bread
-BBQ sauce (a few Tbsp per pita)
-shredded chicken mixed with BBQ sauce
-part-skim mozzarella cheese
-pineapple chunks
-chopped red onion
-chopped cilantro
-jalapeno slices
-garlic powder (or fresh garlic)

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Spread pitas on a greased baking sheet.  Top with a layer of sauce, a layer of mozzarella cheese, and the remaining toppings as desired.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Slice and serve.
